Bengaluru: A man thought to be dead, was found alive on the autopsy table in Karnataka. The man, aged 27, met with a motorcycle accident following which he was undergoing treatment in a private hospital in Belagavi. But after a two-day observation, the hospital authorities declared him ‘brain dead’ and suggested the family take his body home.
The body was shifted to a government hospital in Bagalkote on Monday for the mandatory post-mortem before the final rites.

The doctor assigned to do the post-mortem found the body twitch when touched. The doctor then checked with a pulse oximeter and found there were a heartbeat and a pulse as well.
The man was then immediately shifted to a private hospital. It is stated that the vitals of the man are normal as of today and he has a chance to survive.
Thinking that the man was dead, the family had also prepared for the final rites.
